    why let the industry write the report?
    And slam dunk? KXL? You did not get that from me, don't expect me to reply to it.

    When looking at something like KXL, the Obama Administration does what each of us do in evaluating change. They have a plus column and a minus column. I do fault the Obama Administration for not letting us see those columns. I can guess what's there with some fashion of accuracy but I can't understand why they don't just show us.

    Maybe when they make the decision -- which I can always be wrong about, by the way.

      reductions?

      Don't misunderstand me, I have discussions beyond here where people are more concerned about other aspects of domestic NG drilling and discount both the environmental significance of getting off coal as well the drop in CO2 because of it's use. Looking at the net generation stats stats, I'm not necessarily reassured.

        Numbers I quoted. They're about 2 years old and I cannot attest to their accuracy within a % or two. From what I could tell, they were accurate at the time.

        We've made progress with conservation at the same time. My new furnace uses half the NG my old one did. My washer and dryer, same thing, better efficiency. And I and most other people have made efforts toward conservation, not enough, of course.

        I have to think that accounts for some of the discrepancy.
